In an interview, the elated victor expressed his intention to utilize the immense wealth to extend a helping hand to those in need, firmly believing that the blessings he received were part of a higher plan.
The winner, overwhelmed by his good fortune, humbly expressed, “Hindi ko pa alam sa ngayon kung paano ko iha-handle ang ganito kalaking pera. Pero syempre, unang una, tutulong tayo sa kapwa, magbabahagi tayo dahil alam ko may plano si Lord bakit tayo biniyayaan ng ganito,” which translates to, “At this moment, I don’t know how to handle such a massive amount of money. However, first and foremost, we will help others, we will share because I know the Lord has a plan for why we were blessed with this.”
This profound statement reflects the winner’s firm commitment to selflessly assist others, driven by a strong belief that his newfound wealth comes with a divine purpose.
Do not Lose Hope
Additionally, he offered words of encouragement, urging people not to lose hope. He empathized with the common feeling of regret when lottery tickets don’t match the winning numbers, but he emphasized the importance of recognizing that every wager made contributes to supporting fellow individuals in need.
He said, “Huwag po tayong mawalan ng pag-asa. May mga pagkakataon po na nanghihinayang tayo kasi hindi tayo tumama, pero lagi po nating isipin na bawat taya po natin, nakakatulong po tayo sa kapwa,” meaning, “Let’s not lose hope. There are moments when we feel regretful because our numbers didn’t match, but let’s always remember that every bet we make helps our fellow human beings.”
The lucky winner, a 40-year-old resident of Nueva Ecija, purchased his ticket from one of the lotto outlets in Cabiao town. He opted for five combinations, selecting the first four numbers himself and relying on the lucky pick system for the fifth.
